There have been words and harsh criticisms from Roberto Cattaneo, secretary of the UIL border crossing of Como, to the Council of State: “Ticino has proportionately more infected than Comasco and Varesotto, if someone gets sick, Italy will have to cure it”

There has been a disagreement towards the Ticino government by Roberto Cattaneo, secretary of the UIL Frontalieri of Como due to the reopening of activities from Monday 4th May which coincides with the consequent end of the “lockdown” for numerous cross border commuters that are active in the construction and varied companies sectors.

Cattaneo told ‘La Provincia di Como’

Between 40 and 50 thousand cross-border commuters will pass the border on Monday. I have the impression that in Canton Ticino there is no awareness of the seriousness of the current situation. The canton has, in proportion, double the Comasco coronavirus infections and three times more than the Varese province. This is why I consider Bellinzona’ s choices devoid of any logical foundation and in many respects even unreasonable”. The secretary then added “From May 4th Ticino will have to realign itself to the decisions of Bern, having obtained, exceptionally an extension to the restrictions commencing next week. It seems to me there is foolish attitude and a lack of attention to the principles that underlie the good neighbourly relations between Italy and Switzerland. I think the line of the Ticino authorities is clear. In the unfortunate case of contagion, our frontier workers will certainly not be in charge of Ticino’s health care but will return to this side of the border for all the necessary treatment. This is not the way to do it”.

    The University of Friborg along with USI are the universities most applied for by Ticinesi freshmen

    EDUCATION

    After last year’s counter-overtaking, the University of Friborg once again surpasses the University of Italian Switzerland (USI). No, we are not talking about a rivalry such as the one between Oxford and Cambridge complete with a regatta on the Thames, but rather the annual statistics on the satisfaction of freshmen from Ticino. Basically, abandoning sports metaphors, in the academic year 2019/2020 Fribourg has returned to be the most popular among new students in our canton, with 140 new registrations against 96 USI, in turn overtaken by Lausanne (120 registrations) and Zurich (111). This is what emerges from the annual overviewof the academic choices of university students from Ticino made by the Statistical Office (USTAT).
